Ultramarathon Daily News, Wed, April 5

Excellent: Mario’s training and tips for Boston Marathon (or any other race for that matter.)  See what kind of effort and planning it takes?

(And yes, I’ll be interviewing John Kelly soon.)  🙂

USATF 100k Road Championship preview: Nagy, Boller, Ricklefs, Pommier, and more.
